My First Interaction With A Human On Tuesday Morning

First thing this morning a coworker I don't talk to very much bellowed over the cubical wall, "Hey, you know that song, Love Hurts?"

And I said, "Yeah."

He said, "Well, you know the line that goes, Love is like a flame / It burns you when it’s hot?"

I said, “Sure.”

He said, “Isn’t fire, by definition, hot? So why do they say, 'when it’s hot'? It doesn't make any sense."

And I said, "Yeah, well, you've got a point there, fire is always hot."

And he said, "I've just been wondering about that lately."
